From the Publisher:

Judy Laufer’s delightful new picture book, Last Night I Had a Laughmare!, takes sleepyheads of all ages to a magical world of bedtime adventure where nothing is EVER quite what it seems! Star-hung swings? Purple hair? Shoelaces made of spaghetti? These are just a few of the surprises in store for visitors to Gigglyville…and the town’s silly residents love to have company. Bring your own chair and join Liverlips, Smellyfeet, Purplepudding and Dishes on an exciting romp through a place where special wishes are granted, snowballs are made of ice cream, and readers will be laughing ‘til morning.

My View:

Last Night I had a Laughmare by J.E. Laufer is a very cute bedtime story.  It is about a dream world where everything is silly.  It reminds me of many of the Dr. Suess books I enjoyed as a kid and enjoy sharing with my children today.  The illustrations are full page and quite vibrant.  Laughmare is told with rhythm and rhyme, both of which are important to help keep the attention of the younger crowd.  I would certainly recommend this book to my friends looking for more bedtime faire.

Here is a sample of one of the pages:

I would like to thank Smith Publicity and NetGalley for providing me with the eARC in exchange for my honest opinion.

Brandilyn is a middle-aged (When the hell did that happen?) stay-at-home mom to 3 beautiful children (of course she is biased). She started reading M/M Romance and Gay fiction in early 2012 and was quickly hooked. In her first 18 months as a M/M Romance fan, she read over 900 titles in the genre (not counting re-reads), ranging from shorts to epic novels. She reads across all tropes within the Gay Fiction genre…. except Regency, she has never found a love for Regency. A native Texan she finds Texas to the be almost perfect… except for one thing, their treatment of the GLBTQ community. This blog is her brain child and she is happy to welcome some fellow GLBTQ supporters to review here and help promote equality (oh and of course fangirl/fanboy over their favorite authors and works).
